    Hi all,
    I am able to connect the tablet to a PC using the USB port as client, but I am NOT able to use it as host mode as the technical specs report (USB port (host/client). I have an USB adapter from micro male usb to a mini female USB but is I connect a USB pen drive to the port it doesn't work.
    Did you used the port in host mode?

    cheers

    I don't know what "Host Mode" is or what you mean by Client, but I brought a Micro-USB to Female USB adapter from amazon to link my PS3 controller to the tablet. It came today and as a quick test I plugged it into the tablet and then plugged a random USB stick in to test it. Seemed to work fine. Got a messsage pop up telling me it was connected and I could access the USB stick from the file manager and transfer files between the internal memory, the Stick and the SD card.

    Glad this worked out. I have yet to/need to do this.
